June is Indigenous History Month

June is Indigenous History Month in Canada — a time to seek out understanding and reconciliation, to honour First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples and to amplify their voices. To mark the occasion, six Indigenous Concordians share their insights through a series of short video messages, to be released throughout the month on Concordia Alumni social media platforms.

Paul Seesequasis is helping reclaim Indigenous history by finding the stories behind archival photos. The writer curated a new exhibition called Turning the Lens: Indigenous Archive Project.

June is NIHM, an opportunity to acknowledge and honour the history, culture and resilience of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation. We encourage all Canadians to take time to learn more about Indigenous Peoples and to explore our collective past. Knowing and acknowledging the past and its ongoing impacts is the first step towards healing and reconciliation.
